Whatever happened to full-service design studios? Seriously. For more than 20 years, as the owner of Ambiance Design Gallery and a professional interior designer based in Rochester, NY, I’ve watched an entire industry shift its attention—almost exclusively—to quick fixes and the occasional family room renovation or kitchen remodel. There are TV shows about decorating in a weekend, blogs devoted to afternoon DIY design projects and entire websites written with one-time interior design “fixes” in mind.
Don’t you want more from your relationship with a designer? I hope so, because I’d rather get to know you. I want to find out what excites you and then work with you to create a comprehensive interior design plan; one that incorporates your personal preferences and is suited to your lifestyle. In other words, I want to lead you through a soulful, thoughtful and creative interior design process that blends comfort, style and substance. Welcome home to Ambiance Design Gallery. I’m glad you stopped by!
